A little competition is a good thing. Especially when you're competing at something that really matters. Like barbecue. And let's face it, whether you're competing against the top smoke masters, the guy next door, or yourself, barbecue matters. So, for all you folks who like to win – the smoke pit crews, the Backyard Chefs the apron-wearing, tong-carrying people who live to "Grill" – it is YOU for whom we build our Yoder Smokers.

Made in the USA, The Good-One® Smoker/Grill was first conceived and built in 1988 in Kansas. Its unique offset firebox cooking chamber design holds even heat over an extended period of time. This smoker/grill takes competition barbecuing to new heights and produces outstanding smoked meats and other outdoor cooked foods. It requires significantly less attention than other smokers and grills. 

“Before you start smoking brisket, Aaron [Franklin] recommends purchasing a smoker with a separate firebox so the meat doesn’t cook over direct fire, but slowly by hot smoke. He recommends pits by Pitts & Spitts...”
Texas on the Table • Terry Thompson-Anderson

In 1948, Grant Hastings produced the first Hasty-Bake Charcoal Oven. As one of the original manufacturers of the “backyard barbecue,” Hastings was a pioneer in the industry. Specifically, Hasty-Bake introduced the first portable unit, the first hooded unit, and a new method of cooking using indirect heat. Hastings’ design controlled the intensity of heat by using vents, a heat deflector, a ventless hood and an adjustable fire box, revolutionizing the method in which food was cooked.

The Holland Grill is not an "ordinary" gas grill. Made right here in the USA, we cook food better and do it more easily than any gas BBQ grill made. Period. Many have tried to copy our unique indirect grilling system but none have succeeded. If you're looking for a gas grill that's easy to use and grills the most tender, juicy food you'll ever taste, you're looking for a Holland Grill. Great food, no flare-ups and hassle-free!  Tired of fighting the fire on an ordinary gas grill? Our exclusive drip pan is between the food and the flame, so food won't catch on fire. Drippings strike the drip pan and sizzle and smoke, giving the food its distinctive Holland Grill juicy flavor. The Holland is the only grill made which offers a No Flare-Up Guarantee--in writing!

Our fleet of ceramic grills are designed to fit everyone's outdoor cooking needs. From our flagship Jack Daniel's Edition Oval XL 400 to our classic round Kamado. Every Primo grill is made to be a primary outdoor cooker, but any of them can be added to a built-in outdoor kitchen or to complement an existing grill or smoker. To give you an idea of the size of our grills and cooking area, we've rated them based on the number of steaks that can be grilled at one time.

Flat out the best ceramic grill on the planet!  That may be a bold statement, but we invite you to look under the hood and see for yourself!  If you compare Kamado Joe Ceramic Grill with other ceramic grills on the market, you’ll soon recognize that Kamado Joe’s the best built grill on the market and that fit and finish are second to none! But there’s a lot more to a Kamado Joe grill than meets the eye.
